Rock Steady Boxing with Doug
Are you Rock Steady? Join Doug Pickard, a Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) Affiliate Owner, who will lead a six-week fitness boxing class for Parkinson's.

Persons living with Parkinson’s will experience a total workout for both their mind and body as it incorporates cardio, strength, balance, hand-eye coordination, and speed! Common non-motor symptoms such as anxiety and depression may also be alleviated through boxing and exercise.

Rock Steady Boxing is a fitness program dedicated to supporting people with Parkinson’s. In an RSB class, exercises are largely adapted from boxing drills. Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork, and overall strength. Exercises vary in purpose and form, but share one common trait: they are rigorous and intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant.

No previous boxing experience is required. All you’ll need is:

No previous boxing experience is required. All you’ll need is:
• a water bottle to drink from
• set of dumbbells (or water bottles filled with water)
• a short wooden dowel (a broomstick will do!)

Besides some basic boxing drills, Doug incorporates balance exercises, vocal exercises, strength training, and lots of stretching.

This exercise program is considered LEVEL 3: Fast-paced and high-intensity class for those who are looking for a challenge. Participants must be able to safely participate in without a carepartner/caregiver present.

IMPORTANT: If you will be watching this presentation with a partner or group, only one registration is required. Instructions on how to access the presentation will be sent in an email following your registration, and in a reminder approximately 24 hours before the webinar's start time.
